The Great Recession Revisited.

Share Button

Recently, a facebook friend posted an old Forbes article from 2009, blaming the entire financial crisis on the Federal Government. I wrote a couple of previous posts here and here rebutting that idea, but I thought it would be interesting to look at it in relation to the specific Forbes article in question. Lets take […]

More WND Fun… They Never Fail To Amaze.

They say the Devil is in the details, but he’s often in the details that get left out. An article by one “news” organization that specializes in leaving out details is making the rounds on facebook today… It’s none other than World Net Daily, an information outlet that I’ve had fun debunking in the past […]

“Are We Not News! We Are CNN”

Share Button

Yeah… I’m paraphrasing DEVO… Badly. CNN President Jeff Zucker is crowing about how his network “won’t be shamed” into covering the latest hearings on Benghazi. Um… OK. On his networks around-the-clock ridiculous coverage of flight 239: “If I take a step back from our coverage of the Malaysian plane’s disappearance, I’m incredibly comfortable with it. […]

Setting The Record Straight… At Least Some Of It!

Late last night, when i got home from my awesome gig with my band Laurel Canyon, I was amp’d up as usual after a good gig, and roamed the intertubes for a bit.  I came across this Huff-Po bit concerning every liberals favorite punching bag, Sarah Palin: Palin Crossed Border For Canadian Health Care I […]

Climate Science Writer…. Smack Down!!!!

Over at Juduth Curry’s excellent climate blog Climate Etc, there is an interesting conversation going on concerning a rebuttal by The Economist against an article from The New Republic which was a rebuttal against a previous article from the Economist! Got that? Yeah, it gets complicated after a while. But it’s fun to watch as […]

Words Fail….. More Evidence That The GOP Has Gone Nuts

This article SHOULD show how building a fence to stop illegal immigration is a hopelessly flawed idea. Instead… Well… I think it’s supposed to show that McCain and Schumer are letting illegals into the country…. Or something. Idunno. The comments are priceless! Here’s one: “And the son-of-a-bitch did nothing to stop it?! Yet, he can […]

When The Name Doesn’t Represent The Content…. Part 2 *UPDATE* Post Is Void!

UPDATE – Dan B came to the rescue. Thankfully, he wrote a nice post on the topic, so this post is mute. So, it’s March 26th, and the Supreme Court hear the arguments for the Prop 8 case concerning the legality and Constitutionality of same sex marriage. Guess which blog that has the name Gay […]

By now you’ve all heard about the Manti Te’o hoax. Details so far are here. I’m not going to go into details about the hoax, as this is just breaking and I’m sure there is much more that will come out.  Here is the point I want to touch on. Within, and outside of the […]

Snow Fall! Journalism Success… And Fail!

Share Button

Here is the latest web offering from the New York Times. It’s being touted as the future of web content, and will supplant blogs and newspapers as our source for information. Layout wise, it is impressive. But are they expecting us to want to read, or, for those of us wading in the blog-pool, produce, […]

When The Name Doesn’t Represent The Content….

Share Button

I don’t like the title I just came up with, and I don’t feel all that comfortable being critical of bloggers who I also consider friends. But Bruce… Dan… The name of your blog is “Gay Patriot“. It’s been 4 days since the election, and you’ve written nothing about the success of the four pro […]
